Why don't Americans believe UFOs are real?

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   29 comments

Public opinion polls about Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) have been conducted by a large number of organizations over the years.  While the numbers have varied, the general results show that the public is very aware of UFO sightings and is interested in what may be causing them.  Many also show concern that the government is either hiding the truth, or not doing enough to resolve the mystery. 

Given that this is a concern, it is incredible that most people don’t look into the evidence.  Moreover, when clearly defining UFOs to mean those vehicles that are of non-earth origin, the majority of Americans either doubts their existence or don’t believe in their reality at all.  Many even refuse to accept that UFOs and the extraterrestrials (ETs) that occupy them are real even when presented with clear proof.  

Some of the confusion is directly related to a misinformation campaign that is being waged against the public.  It is obvious that our government knows about the reality of UFOs.  Furthermore, it is clear that the government is engaged in a conspiracy to hide the truth.  However, if Americans will look the truth is obtainable.  These are extraordinary statements but there is plenty of evidence to substantiate them.

In a courtroom, witnesses would be used extensively to establish facts.  They are usually the primary means of proving facts in a trial.  Of course other evidence is admitted but witnesses are usually the heart of the argument.  The case for UFOs and ETs is no different.  Witness testimony is available and other forms of evidence are available as well. 

Americans should start by looking at the solid testimony from over 450 corporate and military witnesses that has been accumulated by two disclosure initiatives.  These disclosure witnesses have openly stated they are willing to testify, under oath and before Congress about their direct encounters with UFO crash site investigations, secret UFO documents, UFO photographic evidence, UFO radar reports and recovered crashed ET vehicles.  See: www.disclosureproject.com  and http://www.freedomofinfo.org/

Jurisprudential evidence of this quality does not get any better, especially when witnesses possess the ranks of Brigadier Generals, Commander of ICBM Launch facilities, Senior FAA Crash Site Investigators, astronauts, pilots and officers with above top secret clearance.  This testimony is the tip of the iceberg and is only a good starting point. 

Many Governments have started releasing previously classified data on ETs and UFOs.  France was the first, in March 2007 the French National Space Agency placed 1600 previously classified UFO sighting reports into the public domain for examination; beginning the process of full disclosure of non-Earth origin craft.  Similarly, the United Kingdom in May 2007 began a disclosure initiative. Other counties have started to follow suit.  It is time for Americans to examine their evidence and the United States to disclose as well.

The United Nations General Assembly has voted to invite U.N. Member States "to take appropriate steps to coordinate on a national level scientific research and investigation into extraterrestrial life, including unidentified flying objects, and to inform the Secretary-General.” Why doesn’t the United States respond to the U.N.?

Canada has moved toward a response.  The Honorable Paul Hellyer, a former Canadian Defense Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, stated publicly in September 2005 at the University of Toronto’s Convocation Hall before the press and over 500 people, "UFOs, are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head."

Clearly the evidence proving this case is abundant.  The fact is men have been executed in America with less evidence presented at their trial. Then why don’t Americans believe UFOs are real?  The answer is, because they will not examine the evidence.
